Waiting is a big part of Advent, something that at times is not the easiest thing to do (especially for impatient red-heads!) Here’s an arresting thought & prayer from my favorite Trappist monk for our minds & hearts to munch on this 3rd day of Advent.
“Teach us to wait, as we hang in the balance of the past and the possible.” Thomas Merton
grace, peace & inspired waiting

I do not like waiting..praying
Carol-Jo – me, too! Waiting, like patience, is not an easy endeavor. Methinks that’s why we need divine waiting classes to help us to eventually ‘renew our strength & mount up with wings as of eagles…’ (Isaiah 40:28-31) Blessings! ✨💜✨🤗✨💜✨
Your post made my day richer.
Thank you, Bernadette. That means lots! ✨💜✨🌷✨🤗✨🌷✨💜✨
We are now in the season of Advent, three Sundays more to go.
Arlene, December is marching on! Can’t believe Christmas is three weeks away. Blessings! ✨💜✨🌟✨💜✨
Love the verse by Merton. Passing through with a tag on Richard Rohr and stayed around as I liked what I saw. Happily came across this Merton verse.
Thank you, Rambling Rose – I surely like your name (have a thing for roses) & really like your blog, too. I’m also a groupie of Rohr & Merton (& Catherine Doherty who met w/ Merton before he became a monk.) Blessings back to you! 🌹✨🌟✨🌹
